Re: Head gaskets leaking

I would avoid any kind of sealant added to the coolant.

As Alastair suggests, speak to Ian.

Re: ns250r gear box ratios

Hi Anne, Love your work, you were great on breakfast telly! What is it you're trying to do? Fit an NSR gearbox into an ND5? Looks like you're short of a lot of bits.. I wasn't aware of there being a 2T 250gp bike prior to the ND5, I thought it was the first. Prior to the ND5 they were diesel. Have y...

. . . Lastly the beer that is in the pubs will have gone off by the time they reopen . . .
Huh?

I use fuel stabiliser in my bikes to prolong fuel life.

Is there not a similar additive for beer? :lol: :lol:
Great idea! :D

Re: Speedo change to mph

Evening Kev,

As far as I remember, yes. Or take the bulb out, or stick a piece of tape over it.

The speed light is just a light. There are no ignition restrictions on the NS, it just wasn't that advanced.

A few home market bikes had a sleeve in the ATAC, but that's easily removed.

Re: Shepherd 500cc motor

I do vaguely remember the build thread starting for this. I've never entered a legal battle out of choice. Truth is, by the time you get to the point of legal proceedings, there will generally be two winners. The legal teams on either side. Sounds like a sad story. Sorry to hear it didn't end well. ...

Re: Rs500 replica build

Hi Nigel,

Yes, it certainly looks much better with the stripes correctly aligned. I'm pretty sure I saw the bike for sale a year or so ago?

Ah, yes. I see you have one or two diesel Hondas, and one is even the pretty version.. I do like the 03-06 model. I have a '93 P.

I think around £1500 depending on colour/decal treatment. I'm having only the tank done which has been quoted as £350-ish. That will probably mean £400-plus :roll: . Might seem expensive, but we all know that for the best job we have to shell out!!

Re: Heat shileds cross over question

Part numbers suggest that all the heat shields are specific to the NS400, rather than carried over from the NS250 MC11

Re: Running Hot

If you want an easy fix look for a product called 'Water Wetter' I think it's made by Redline. I've heard of this and had been sceptical, as you were. I may just give it a go. The NS fan is pitiful at best, so I opted for a big rad, which as yet is untested. It's handy to know that the product works
